We landed in Dublin early in the morning of October 1st. A car was waiting Immediately after we left Immigration. We w ere taken to the Hilton Claremont, where we stayed for two nights. The hotel was within walking distance of the city centre and yet had a beautiful canal just opposite it. After a short rest we decided to go for a walk a long the canal.
It was a lovely day - cool yet sunny. There was a slight breeze which made it a bit cooler but this was still early on Friday morning. Most people were going to work and there were some who were running or exercising too. I saw a young mother pushing her pram and walking along the canal. There were ducks swimming- it all seemed so tranquil and beautiful.
We walked on towards the town but stopped half way when we saw a fish and chip shop. Buying some take away we decided to go back to our hotel. It was around 3.30 pm. The fish and chips would serve as our late lunch then.
